In Real Life
This gigantic Pterosaur which lived 66 MYA in the Late Cretaceous Period on the Hatzeg Island of Romania. It preyed on many dwarf dinosaurs like Magyarosaurus, Bradycneme, Balaur, and others. It was about the size of a Giraffe just like it's American relative, Quetzalcoatlus, though the Hatzegopteryx was generally larger.
Called by the name "Stork of Doom" by some, it was a frightening sight for any small animal. It probably was one of if not the only predator on the island which was inescapable, surrounded by deep waters it was like a prison for the sauropods, ornithopods and other animals. This animal gained popularity because of the documentary Planet Dinosaur of 2011.
The Hatzegopteryx (Hats-egg-opt-er-icks) (Hateg Island wing) which is also nicknamed "Hatz" or "Hatty" is the Quetzalcoatlus's only competition in Aerial combat, not counting the Ghidorahs. In fact, many players would consider the Hatzegopteryx to be a direct counter to the Quetzalcoatlus.
The carnivorous Hatzegopteryx is stronger than the Quetzalcoatlus and Kaiju Sauroposeidon with a 12 damage points increase, making it the hardest-hitting obtainable aerial creature in the game. It once wasn't popular due to the fact that, just like the Guanlong, it glitched so hard it was difficult to use. It was unable to fly straight, and it was always careening around. Once you passed the baby stage, however, you could fix this by sleeping.
The Hatzegopteryx has an overall thin Pale White body that is all unioned and smoothed out like all the new models. The Hatzegopteryx has a long and narrow head, Dark Gray beak and large wings, and a Light Gray frill on its head with a Black line that goes down to merge with its eyes.
The animal's design was based off the design of the well known and respected paleontologist and pterosaur expert, Mark Witton.
